    About Us

    Welcome to Birch Grove Primary School, established in 1999. Birch Grove Primary School offers a PreK-2 education students of diverse cultures, emphasizing the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of each child. We strive to instill high standards for academic integrity, and leadership in our students, as well as to create a school community in which all students feel a strong sense of belongingness and involvement. Our ultimate goal is for every student to walk through our front doors and feel as if Birch Grove is their home away from home.

    Our mission is to provide a high quality educational experience that meets the needs of our ever-changing population and society. Through the collaborative efforts of home, school and community, all students will be given the opportunity to reach their highest potential.

    We emphasize the GROW matrix – Great choices, Respect and responsibility, Outstanding students, and Working together.

    We encourage you to contact our administrative staff whenever you have questions, comments or concerns. We look forward to working with you and your child.

    Any child who will be five years of age on or before January 1, 2020, and meets all residency requirements is eligible to begin the registration process for kindergarten for the next school year. Please check the Quick Link to the right for registration information.
